Welcome to Heritage Presbyterian Church ~ as we navigate the new realities of Covid-19 in our community and in our world:

We continue with in-person worship in the sanctuary and worship on line via the church's Facebook Page. Please take note of the following additions we have in place in order to offer a safe worship for all:

  • Social distancing will be encouraged, and we also ask that everyone not vaccinated please wear a mask. If you do not have a mask, we have both disposable and reusable masks at church. You will be offered your choice upon your arrival.
  • If you prefer to wear a mask for any reason, you are welcome to do so. 
  • If you are vaccinated, wearing a mask during the service is your choice.
  • We are all about being kind to our neighbors and keeping our neighbor safe and well in all ways. 
  • Please sit in the rows marked with green and refrain from sitting in rows marked with red. Please keep three cushions between you/those in your family and the next person nearest to you.
  • We continue to enjoy listening to Ann play the hymn without singing. 
  • Offering plates will not be passed but will be stationed near the exit door.
  • Communion will be shared from pre-packaged, individual communion juice/wafer combo packs.

Our worship service will continue to be shared on Facebook as a live connection on Sundays at 10:30am and reposted Sunday afternoon to this website (see "Links" on the left menu tab). 

The Sunday bulletin is available under the "Bulletins" tab (posted on Sunday mornings) located on the left menu bar. Join us at: https://www.facebook.com/heritagepresoh

We continue to be the connectional church, taking our faith seriously. We continue to be faith-filled people of God, living as disciples with a healthy dose of humor and gratitude as we gather electronically in Spirit and in person. We continue to be as active in ministry in new ways, doing all that we can as creatively as possible; however, we are also committed to doing our part to continue to keep the curve flat and encourage you to join us, and our community, in this effort. 

If you are not receiving the online newsletter or church emails and wish to, send an email to connect@heritagepcusa.com and we will include you in our send list. 

Previous services from Facebook Live are available on the "Links" tab, found on the left hand menu on this web page. 

The office will be open from 10am-2pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, and the voice mail is checked regularly. 



We will return to this, our Welcome message, once we resume regular worship and ministries in our church building: 

Welcome to Heritage Presbyterian ~ we hope you will join us for worship, which begins at 10:30 am on Sunday mornings. Our adult Sunday School begins at 9:30 am. 

We like to say that Heritage is a small church with a BIG heart (and yes, we also are the church with the green roof on the corner of Rts 58 and 2). 

We love to serve. We love sharing our ministry with the community. We seek to be God's hands actively engaged in ministry here at home. 

We take our faith journey seriously, and we serve with a huge amount of joy in our hearts. We are primarily an older adult congregation with intergenerational hearts. 

Join with us, and share your gifts on this wonderful journey of faith! 

We are easily accessible to a cluster of communities including Elyria, Lorain, Oberlin, Vermilion. 

Heritage Presbyterian Church was formed in October, 1999 by the merger of Westminister Presbyterian Church chartered in Amherst, OH in 1958, and Northminister Presbyterian Church, chartered in Lorain, OH in 1962. 

Both Westminister and Northminister are descendents of First Presbyterian Church in Lorain, OH, chartered in September, 1900.


  • Advent Worship with the Synod of the Covenant

    Thanks to the Internet, we can join in worship with Presbyterians, and other faith traditions, all across the world. In our own backyard, the Synod of the Covenant will be providing an on line worship opportunity sharing voices from around the Synod. 

    Use this link to find the services between November 22 and December 27, including a service for Christmas Eve.



  • Online Giving

    If you are interested in creative ways to send in a gift to Heritage, please call the church office, or connect via the church Facebook page using Messenger (by clicking on the button below). 

    We can help to facilitate a direct connection via PayPal or through your online giving with your personal banking account. This can help folks who travel or who "snow bird" (or "reverse snow bird!") during the year. 

    We are more than happy to help your Stewardship of the Heart! 

    And remember, bring your extra change with you on Sundays!  Children and adults alike can make a difference simply by sharing what we carry around in our pockets. Thank you for helping to continue the vital ministry of Heritage in the Amherst/Lorain area!
